Archaeology Notes (1965)

NF85NE 10 unlocated.

'There is a little chapel in the island Rona, called the Lowlanders' Chapel, because seamen who die in time of fishing are buried in that place.'

Source: M Martin 1934.

Beveridge infers from Martin's statement 'the existence of a pre-Reformation chapel, and a rocky knoll near the west side of Ronay, north of the only dwelling which that island contains, is known as Cnoc nan Gall' (Hill of the Lowlanders).

Source: E Beveridge 1911.

The site of this chapel was not located.

Visited by OS (J T T) 3 June 1965.
